Start with the American Physical Therapy
Association Website at www.apta.org There you
can look up specialists in orthopedics, they would be best suited to help you.
Your surgeon should also be able to recommend at least one PT clinic that they
trust in your area, if not more. It is difficult to chose a facility as there
are so many in most areas. Friends, family and MD references are the best way to
find the best. The evaluate and treat is very common and usually means that the
MD has confidence in PTs to know what to do with you after they evaluate you. If
you don't feel comfortable with your PT, go somewhere else. Let them explain
themselves to you and educate you on what is ahead of you. If they don't explain
things, find someone who does. Good Luck!
[physical_therapists_in_business] Femur injury, PT how to choose one?!
There are dozens of PT's and Pt groups in the
immediate area. How is a client (me) supposed to figure out if any of the
PT's are better suited to help evaluate our injury than any other? It is a
meaningful business question.
Calling them, all say the same
blathering GARBAGE "... of course we can help evaluate that...." but none
of them mention any type of specialty or method they would use to treat
The injury appears to be weakness and scar tissue buildup..
that's inhibiting usage and my range of motion, to a meaningful degree.
The Surgeon's script reads simply evaluate & strengthen.. in short
appears simple, very boring stuff.
I had a dual femur fracture
which was repaired with a rod & two pins nearly two years ago very
high up... now it hurts more than it ever did immeidately after
This is a PT business question..
Can any members here
offer suggestions how a normal peron distinguishes the particular skills
or "bent" of one group of individual PT from another...
Or is it
all random and unimportant, and it won't matter one bit to our recovery...
its an insignifigant injury anyway... <ssi>
